Yokogawa Wins Order for Saudi Arabia's First Supercritical Thermal Power Plant
 

Tokyo, May 14, 2014 (JCN) - Yokogawa Electric Corporation has won an order from Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. to supply control systems, safety instrumented systems, analysis systems, and other products for Stage-1 of the Jeddah South supercritical oil-fired thermal power plant project in Saudi Arabia. The joint order recipients are Yokogawa Electric and a subsidiary, Yokogawa Middle East & Africa B.S.C.(c).

Jeddah South will be Saudi Arabia's first supercritical thermal power plant, and is being built by a state-owned enterprise, the Saudi Electricity Company, at a site south of the city of Jeddah, which is on Saudi Arabia’s western coast, facing the Red Sea. Stage-1 of this project involves the construction of four 723 MW units producing a total of 2,892 MW. Unit 1 is scheduled to start operation in 2017.

Yokogawa Saudi Arabia, a subsidiary of Yokogawa Middle East & Africa, will be responsible for the engineering and commissioning of the DCSs, SISs, and PIMSs. Yokogawa Electric and Yokogawa Electric Korea Co., Ltd. will be responsible for the engineering and delivery of the current-to-pneumatic converters and the analysis systems.

Yokogawa has executed a number of large oil & gas and petrochemical projects and provided more than 80 control systems for power plant and power plant utilities throughout the Middle East. Furthermore, the company has set down deep roots in the region through such initiatives as the establishment in 2006 of Yokogawa Saudi Arabia.
